In the kitchen, decorated with plastic flowers and lace curtains, they ransack drawers and cupboards. In the bedroom, they find a small bottle of I Love New York eau de toilette standing half-empty, as if recently used. But the food in the fridge has spoiled. The soldiers' target is long gone.

Attorney Gerald Condon recalls the time a family was gathered in his office to hear the reading of the father's will. One of the sisters whipped out a computer printout and read off a list of the gifts her parents had bestowed over the years on her brothers and sisters--a car, a business loan, a wedding. "She had been keeping track and she was upset," Condon says. "Even though the will distributed the property equally to each child, she calculated she was out about $100,000.

The federal government on Thursday unveiled one of the most ambitious programs ever to house moderate- and low-income families, announcing $488 billion in funding that could turn tens of millions of families into new homeowners and renters in the next decade. More than $34 billion will be spent in the five-county Los Angeles area, helping more than 360,000 families in the region, which has seen home prices and rents soar in the last year as the economy continues to create more jobs than housing.

Despite overcast skies, police estimated that about 300,000 people showed up at the sixth annual street fair, the largest Cinco de Mayo celebration in the country. Police fielded about 650 plainclothes and patrol officers for the event, 150 more than last year.

Any journalist who has covered the U.S. economy during the past two decades has met the type: the ex-steel worker in scrub whites retraining as a nurse's aide; the laid-off marketing manager who walks around with a briefcase that turns out to be empty: people who thought they had an unshakable grip on the good life only to be tossed over by economic forces beyond their control or even understanding.
